COBA August 2006 Meeting

The August 2006 meeting of the Camera Owners of the Bay Area (COBA) user group will be held this Wednesday, August 9, 2006 in Cordura Hall 100 at Stanford University from 7:30-10:00 pm.

NOTE: Sorry for the extreme tardiness in the meeting announcement. Originally, we were scheduled to cover aerial photography. Due to scheduling conflicts, that presentation will held next month on September 13.

Portable and Studio Lighting

Had it already been a year since our last lighting presentation? We’ll have a variety of lighting rigs set up to compare and contrast, from AlienBees studio lights to a bevy of Speedlites. Topics that will be discussed include:

  • Portable vs. Studio Lighting
  • Value of Diffusers (Softboxes, LightSphere, OmniBounce)
  • Remote Controls
  • Lighting Techniques
  • Pricing

We’re also looking for help from COBA members to provide the following at the meeting:

  • Backdrop
  • Gels and Gel Attachment for AlienBees lights
  • Extra Softbox for AlienBees lights
  • Wireless Remote Controls

Printing Test Photos

There will be a sample scene that COBA members can photograph to be printed on their printers of choice for the September meeting. The goal of the printing test is to provide a baseline and controlled environment with which to test. If you are interested in participating, please bring your camera with you to the meeting.
